If you love that absurd video of Waka Flocka Flame rapping in the fills for one of his songs, be prepared to love the presidential hopeful's new track with Good Charlotte. Today (June 2), the collaborative track "Game On" is from the upcoming Adam Sandler/Kevin James film Pixels: The Movie, and it blends together your favorite Flocka meme with video game sounds and thumping drums.
And, shockingly it works. KoOoLkOjAk produced the track, which somehow manages to blend together pop-punk and rap in a way that's totally tolerable. From the start, it's clear that Flocka won't be taking himself too terribly seriously on this soundtrack single, as he storms in with "Flocka. Bow bow bow bow bow bow. Turnt up. Squad squad squad squad."
Then, the drums and guitars kick in and the song gets "turnt up" for real. The chanting courtesy of Benji and Joel Madden brings out a certain level of intensity in this track and give even Flocka's most intensive deliveries a run for their money.
"This is not game now / Nobody can save you / Spent up all your change and now your turn is done / We won't be afraid / 'Cause we're the ones who made you / Knock you out the frame / We won't stop until you're done / Game on," the Maddens sing in the hook before Flocka comes in with video game filled riffs in his signature raspy voice. His harsh delivery against massive drums and a slew of Pacman sounds gives this song a vibe that sounds like its coming from the villain instead of our game's hero.
